Hi m8
A bit O/T but i read a bit about your problems with a new rig on the help forum ,i hope youve got somewhere now.I have to say though that after having a 9700pro for many years (an excellent card i may add) i recently purchased a x1900xt(sapphire) card and have had no problems.Ive got a asus A8N5X mb and a trust 450 watt psu which all runs fine,(after i enabled CCC overdrive tab,which boosted it somewhat).
I just dont want you to right the card off as it performs fantastically,and i think you will agree if you can get your problems sorted.
All the best and goodluck!!

some 4ms rated LCD test slower than 8ms rated one's

why ? , because manufacturer's cannot be trusted to test properly

When they get to less than 1ms they start quoting in microseconds instead of milliseconds.

No, they do actually run at 4ms. Its marketting though, they can get them to run that quick but in normal operation you won't get a response time that fast i.e. an good 8ms response time will run between 12 and 16 most of the time but in ideal conditions will go as fast as 8ms.

I had a Samsung 19" LCD for a couple years. It had a 500:1 contrast ratio and 25ms response time. It worked flawlessly and gave an excellent picture...<fast forward 2 years>...I recently purchased a Samsung 21" LCD to replace my aging 19". It has a 700:1 contrast ratio, 5ms response time, higher native resolution (1600x1200 instead of 1024x768) and connects digitally instead of the old blue RGB connection of the older model. The difference in the picture is INCREDIBLE!

Although some of the improvement is simply the connection, I had no idea the difference would be that great, but even my Wife says it's like night and day.

With prices lower than ever, dead pixels practically a thing of the past and performance improving exponentially, now is a great time to buy. The good part is, unlike the processor and video card in your machine, your monitor will last through a few pc builds and seems almost like new afterwards as well.


If you're on the fence for a new monitor, I suggest getting one of the new 19"+ next-gen monitors out right now. You'll be glad you did.
